Chile: Self-Nuked too much or not enough? I’m going with not enough. Don’t we have a few to spare?

His Campaign Ad

Leftist [CNNese for Communist] Gabriel Boric, 35, wins Chile’s presidential election “Considering the recent past, Boric was widely perceived as the presidential candidate who better represented the country’s social movement. He is a supporter of abortion rights, a welfare state model, and leads a broad coalition that includes Chile’s Communist Party.”

—– that’s the CNN bucket of warm spit. Here’s the flip side that CNN will never report.

Communist Candidate Wins Chile Presidential Election After Year of Leftist Mob Violence  Boric’s supporters have given the world much to worry about in the past month. Violent mobs have targeted Kast supporters: attacking conservative families in broad daylight by pelting them with rocks, smashing vehicles at Kast campaign events, organizing threatening mobs to surround Kast himself while conducting door-to-door campaigning, and, on one occasion, attempting to shove a pregnant Kast staffer to the ground. At a Women for Boric campaign event this weekend, singer Camila Moreno declared, “May Kast and Piñera die; we will burn this kingdom.”

    And do not kid yourself, leftist “Americans” are willing to attempt the same things here; physical intimidation/assaults against conservative folks; as the leftist commies in Chile, though here in America, at least I hope and pray so, the outcome if physical violence rears its head, could be a tad different.

    Chile had such promise.
    Sadly, the dumb youngsters have bought the commie lie hook, line and sinker.

  • Kevin in PA December 20, 2021, 2:26 PM

    …and, I forgot to mention, that I find it peculiar so many young people buy the lie.
    It is government policies that have destroyed the ability of young people to prosper, the inability to create intergenerational wealth, the levels of unsustainable debt under which they suffer…all of that caused by government and they want more government to “fix’ it”.
    I shake my head perplexed.

    Chile, meet Venezuela and Nicaragua.

      I’ve been to all those nations several times. And what the Hell: toss in Honduras too. To observe the Latins in their own nations is to shudder and think, “Thank God they are not in America!” But they are. Millions of them. Think 3rd century AD Rome.

    And no more Pinochets to the rescue.

    Have associates who retired to Chile, to build a winery. left for Argentina, abandon their winery in Argentina, Govt purchasing issues, are living happily in Panama, seem to be happy, Atlantic shores.

    Communisms taking SA country by country. Russian mil and Chinese mil, presence is apparently growing. It’s interesting,, seems every other generation, the young, the corrupt need to relearn the lessons of how expensive freedom truly is.

      This current generation seems set on learning it from the bottom of a mass grave.

    Sad. I spent most of the 1990’s working in Chile(and Peru)and it is a tragedy to see what is happening. All the progress of the last 40 years is in danger of being dismantled. As currently in the US, wealth and a vibrant economy are seen as bad and must be replaced by the umbrella of government control. No good can come of these decisions in either the US or Chile. For the US, 2022 elections may begin to reverse some of the nonsense; but in Chile there is no longer a Pinochet to right the wrong. Some would argue that Pinochet was a monster, but to the Chilenos I worked with he set the country on a path to prosperity that was the envy of South America.

      I lived, traveled and worked in South America for 12 years—Buenos Aires for 10 of those years, another two spent with pack, tent and machete wondering around the Andes of Peru, Chile and Argentina. It is just as you wrote about Pinochet. He was the best thing to have happened to Chile, and rescued that nation from the dark tyranny that Salvador Allende would have created. All that progress is now slipping away. It was similar in Argentina: Whatever progress came in with Menem is now gone forever.

      We could use a Pinochet here in the US.

    Commies gonna commie, punish all who resist, and in the case of Chile, exact revenge upon those who punished their parents and grandparents back in the days of Allende and Pinochet. Which will bring about the reaction. The dreary cycle repeats. It’s like the Balkans, the ancient enmity of Turks versus Christians, but instead it’s commies versus nationalists.
    The economic liberalism that Pinochet brought didn’t last, it wasn’t enough. The South American spanish culture is rooted too deeply, the elite getting rich and staying that way by force of arms and the law against the people. Too many people stopped trying to better themselves and their country, and instead decided that it’s time for to eat the rich.
    It’s insanity. The 20Cen left no doubt, communism bring nothing but the charnel house. But people keep not caring. Too many just want the orgy of eating the rich and thinking this time for sure life will be fair, and they’ll be in charge. And they keep thinking that even though their liberty is gone, and half their family and friends have been sent to the camps, it’s all worth it because they ate the rich, and there won’t be any more of those evil folk to steal and oppress them.
    It takes a special shared attitude to keep a free republic healthy and strong, through the efforts each citizen to better themselves and take care of their family, to do their self-chosen part. It doesn’t matter that the other guy is richer as long as it was deserved. Citizens of the republic start equal before the law, and live their self-chosen lives not in hedonistic personal pursuits, but each desiring to contribute to the enterprise as best as they are able. Then the psy/soc/paths get in and start promising wealth without effort, freedom without responsibility, and the republic crumbles.
    It’s an open question if a republic can turn back and reform itself and regain its liberties once it has started down the path to tyranny. Or must all republics inevitably perish into tyranny, with the refugees scattering and bearing with them cultural seeds that implanted into history might flower in some future epoch?

      The Latin American mindset pre-dates the Spanish era. From what we know of all pre-Colombian civilizations none of them valued individual Liberty and all power was vested in the ruling elites. The Latin American “revolutions” of 1810 – 1824 did not change this at all. One white ruling class was substituted for another white ruling class. All Latin American governments from the Maya to the Aztec to the Inca to the modern era can be characterized as tyrannical, corrupt and extractive.

    Yup. They are fvcked. A new generation of Red Guards to run the Killing Fields…

  • El Polacko December 21, 2021, 9:11 AM

    Just another dramatic and inexplicable lurch to the left in the age of Dominion voting machines, and yes, we are well and truly f&^ked.

    The Gen X’ers and older Millenials are coming into power now.

    They love commies and are turning out to be a big bag of dicks.

    But putting all that aside, that is the single greatest political ad I have ever seen.

    If that’s legit, at least the guy has something resembling a sense of humor.

    Na, Down south they steal elections the old fashion way, at gun point, one ballot box at a time. Appears to be effective.
